Miami and Erie Canal north of Bank Street
Description: View of the Miami and Erie Canal north of Bank Street in Cincinnati, Ohio, ca. 1920-1928. In the early 1920s, construction began on the Cincinnati Central Parkway over the former bed of the Miami and Erie Canal. The canal bed was deepened to form the tube for a rapid-transit subway that was never completed. This project was partly financed by the Ohio Department of Public Works, who documented it in a series of photographs between 1920 and 1928. View on Ohio Memory.
